Easiest is to have someone with a socket( forget what size ) turn the engine for you at the crank balancer... Might not be tooo hard to turn by hand as there will be no compression and no resistance from a valve train...lol...

No way you could turn the engine over by hand. I tried, way too difficult. Especially considering you have a shot block.

I used a cresent wrench for it.. but I have no clue what size it was. It was big though..

I have done this with several... lol...

Its 10x'* easier to use tools tho.... 1/2 ratchet makes it easy to turn...

Justin if yours was that tight bud, thats a great sign man...
